Flat Jesus was seen at a  Colorado Rockies baseball game. (See photo at the top of the newsletter.)
He was also seen at a local Clergy Support Lunch (serving bread and wine) with at least one person we know - who is looking rested and energized in the midst of Sabbatical.

Anne is serving as our Sabbatical Coverage Pastor while the Pomeroys are away on their Sabbatical.

She has office hours Tuesday and Wednesday mornings.
She enjoys meeting people for coffee and conversation...

There is so much great Christmas music - why not enjoy it mid-year? Always striving first to connect emotionally with audiences of every age through music, Aaron Shows' performances and compositions often bridge the traditional and modern.
Friends In Deed - Back to School Event Volunteers
FID wanted to reach out to FCC regarding their Back-to-School event. They want to see if we have some folks that would want to help on the distribution days starting July 30, 31, and August 1, four or five volunteers, from about 9:30am until 11:30am would be great, then 2 or 3 in the afternoon.

Please contact Lu Nguyen or Anne Cohen if you are interested.
Hollywood Bowl Summer Outing
Please join Membership Ministry this summer at the Bowl for their annual mini-festival dedicated to the smoothest jazz sounds around-featuring The Commodores and Dave Koz & Friends. Tickets are $36 each, with a total of 30 tickets reserved for our group and a deadline of July 1st to turn in any tickets that are unused. Please see Lu Nguyen to secure a spot and pay. As we have done in the past, we will meet before the concert for a potluck dinner and time for fellowship, then head into the Bowl to enjoy the concert. It should be another wonderful evening under the stars. Come and join us!!!
New Bibles to be Dedicated and Placed in our Pews          
Due to the extra pews in our new worship space, Nina has purchased new Bibles to fill the extra pews and you are invited to buy a few to dedicate to someone. Please leave a check for FCC in the amount of $20 with the dedication you wish to be included in the front inside of the Bible. We suggest only 1 or 2 persons be listed in each Bible so that each is more personal.
